Let’s talk art… A conversation in Colors
What brings us together, and what pulls us apart? The need for stories is in our nature. It reflects our ideas, feelings, and desires.
In Yael’s artwork and art process, Yael Zahavy-Mittelman explores folk stories as a base for understanding the world around her, as well as to form her personal and social identity.
Being an abstract expressionist painter and story-teller, her artwork, at times, is described as expressions of dreams. Zahavy-Mittelman forms whole worlds on canvas, where she tells her stories. The blend of drawing and collage forms art that flows between reality and imagination. A splash of paint, water, pencil, marker, collage, as well as 3-D elements like jewelry, paper towels, beads, and clock pieces create a very rich art process. Being an artist and a story-teller has given Yael Zahavy-Mittelman the opportunity to invite the viewer to play, create a story of their own, and mostly form a connection to the art and to others.
Yael Zahavy-Mittelman has been an artist for many years. She is a member of The Women Painters of WA, a member of the Salon Collaboration Meetup group, as well as a member of The Collage Society.
She has been showing her artwork in galleries, museums and community events in Israel and New York.
